Men of all ages are invited to attend the conference and lunch at 101 Washington Avenue, free of charge. In addition to college representatives being on hand to answer questions from young people, there will also be a lively panel discussion that will provide attendees with life resources, honest conversation, and tools for the future.

Courtland Bragg, associate producer for NFL Films, will give the keynote address. “I think it’s so important for young people and anybody of any age to find your purpose and understand why you are on this earth,” he said. Bragg plans to share his journey and explain how he overcame the roadblocks and storms in his life to become an award-winning producer in just a matter of months.

“Those who come to the conference will get a fresh perspective on how they can set goals and maximize their potential,” said panelist Enrique Josephs, Jr., a voice actor whose done work for such notables as Harry Connick, Jr., Oprah, ESPN, Fox, CBS, and more.  Other panelists will be able to talk about opportunities that cover a wide array of careers, including business and education.

“Our goal is to expose young men to positive role models, men who’ve been blessed in their careers. If they can see men doing well in their careers, it can help them envision themselves doing well. They need to get a vision, get a plan and start making it become a reality,” said Mike Parker, who organized the conference. He urges any male, young and old, who wants to attend the conference and lunch to register for free online at: www.nextgen100.eventbrite.com.
